will stay seated in the vehicle. focused? i can never remember a time when a u.s. president launched military action and didn't speak that evening from the oval office with a sober explanation of what, how, and how much and how long. this action was announced by the secretary of state while the commander-in-chief visited in rio and meticulous attention to basketball brackets. maybe he's lost interest in the job. nex year we can fix that. he might be better suited as a professor and educate and contemplate and never have to reach a conclusion or writing books and perhaps taking a new direction in fiction since much . budget proposals and solutions for stimulating the economy and deficit drowning health care plains are the stuff of fiction. or maybe, maybe he would like to take the job in which he is interested. sports analyst for espn. his decisions in this arena are more accurate and based on more thought and if he's wrong, it really doesn't matter because when he's wrong now, it really does matter and on that there is clarity. that's my view and i welcome yours . cume at mikehuckabe

in the world right now. what is this one worthy of u.s. military intervention. i think if he answers those three questions, i think it will be an effective speech. >> amy, let me pose this to you. one of the challenges is he's not making this speech from the oval office but the national defense university. so i want to get a sense from you what you think the significance of that is, this location, not being at the oval office but being elsewhere. >> i think it's very significant and it's the president signaling once again we're not at war with libya. that this is a humanitarian mission. so to taking out of the oval office and to put it in other setting is to downgrade the importance of this military engagement. if you have it from the oval office, then this is a u.s. led military intervention and it sure looks like war. however, if you give this speech off-site, that, as i say, sort of downgrade as what this military intervention means. >> is itn effect too late for americans? 47% of americans support this intervention in military plan for libya. operationally, things are going pretty well

'll talk about how the mission has been a success. now it's time for the u.s. to step back and play a support role. these are the questions we'll be asking our guests today, on "this week." secretary of state hillary clinton and secretary of defense robert gates. questions along the lines of, how long will we be there? that's a question i put specifically to defense secretary gates. do you think we'll be gone by the end of the year? do you think the mission will be over by the end of the year? >> i don't think anybody knows the answer. >> i think that's a difficult point for the president to make to the people. you'll probably see him try to skate over the end game. he'll try to paint the fact that we're receding back to a support role as an exit strategy of sorts. >> so a big question mark there. jake, the white house is trying to make a clear distinction between military action and violence across the middle east. that we have continued to see. >> that's a question i'll put to secretary of state clinton. people suffering from repressive governments and slaughter all over the world

during his speech? >> he'll talk about how the mission has been a success and now it's time for the u.s. to step back and play a support role. these are some of the questions that we're going to be asking our guests today on "this week." secretary of state hillary clinton and secretary of defense robert gates are questions along the lines of how long are we going to be there involved in this military action? in fact, that's a question specifically i put to defense secretary gates. do you think we'll be gone by the end of the year? will the mission be over by the end of the year? >> i don't think anybody knows the answer to that. >> and that's a difficult point for the president to have to make to the american people that we don't know how long we're going to be there so you'll probably see president obama kind of skate over the end game specifically. he'll try to paint the fact that we're receding back to a support role as an exit strategy of sorts. >> so a big question mark there. and, jake, the white house is also trying to make a clear distinction between military action in libya its
